Manoeuvring : At Close Quarters Under Power Paperback / softback


This is a unique, practical, hands-on guide to boat manoeuvring - ideal for cockpit use or as an aide-memoire. Manoeuvring a yacht under engine at close quarters in a marina closeto other (expensive!) boats can be a daunting prospect for theinexperienced skipper - but it has to be done in order to take yourboat off a pontoon to go sailing, and to berth her after a day on thewater.

Throw in fast flowing tides, and unpredictable wind which might blow from thebow or beam or stern, and the exercise becomes even more of a lottery -even for the experienced boat handler. Here at last is a well organised visual guide to coping in everypossible combination of wind and tide situation.

Laid out in a very clear way, with one manoeuvre per page and in a handy wiro format for use when at the helm, thisis the ideal teach yourself guide, and the perfect on-board aidememoire.

It will be a godsend to every nervous helmsman, and a goodtalking point for crew!
